Life as Activism: June Jordan's Writings from the Progressive (Litwin Books, 2014)

In 1993 I was incredibly fortunate to be a student in June Jordan's "Coming into the World Female" course at UC Berkeley. June Jordan was an amazing poet, essayist, activist, teacher, and so much more. She stood with all of the oppressed. Life as Activism is an edited book I created of her complete protest essays she wrote for The Progressive magazine. This project was completed to help preserve her work and bring her important voice to more people. It includes a foreword by Angela Davis and an introduction by Matthew Rothschild, who was June's editor at The Progressive.
